A Lockdown Solution

The Capital Hotels and Apartments offers 70% discounted apartments as a lockdown solution.

The Capital Hotels and Apartments has responded to President Cyril Ramaphosa’s announcement of a national lockdown from midnight on Thursday 26 March 2020 by making its one-, two-, and three-bedroom sanitized sanctuary apartments available at discounts of up to 70% for the duration of the lockdown, and beyond.

“We understand that plans are constantly changing in these challenging times, and that business executives and families may need somewhere to stay, other than their regular home,” says Marc Wachsberger, managing director of The Capital Apartments and Hotels. “Our apartment hotels have already been well prepared for social distancing and self-isolation practices, and our national footprint means that people all over the country can take advantage of this offer.”

The Capital Hotels and Apartments has five properties in Johannesburg, two in Pretoria, and one each in Cape Town and Durban, with apartments being safe zones where guests can live and work, without worry, as supply chains (including food) have been secured for safe living. The hotels will remain fully staffed as The Capital Hotels and Apartments does everything possible to protect jobs, with workers being able to live on-site safely for the duration of the lockdown.

All apartments are fully furnished, complete with a fully equipped kitchen and stocked pantry, and guests further benefit from a 10% discount of all food and beverages purchased from the hotels’ restaurants. The 70% accommodation discount applies to bookings of one month or longer, with smaller discounts available to bookings of at least 21 days. Each one month stay, paid in advance, entitles the guest to a free three-night stay at any hotel in the group at a future date, subject to availability.

Anyone is welcome to take up this offer, but people who may find this offer most appealing include: those who have been in self-isolation or quarantine and won’t be able to get home ahead of the lockdown; those who have been preparing to emigrate and who have already handed over their previous homes; elderly or frail people who can’t cope taking care of their own property without the help of staff; or contract executives who have been unable to return to their home country due to the closure of certain air traffic routes.

“We’re living in unusual times, which call for unusual solutions,” says Wachsberger. “Everyone needs to pull together to keep people safe, protect workers, and do business differently if we are to secure the future of South Africa, and indeed, the world.”
